Fair Report: Fiber and Knitting


My two favorite sweaters in the Fair were made by Susan Rosenberg. She must love this sort of green as much as I do !
I am really bummed that this photo is blurry. This is one of the most amazing woven pieces that I have ever seen. What is NOT evident in the photo - or in person for that matter- is that there are round pieces of mylar (painted in lush metallic colors) woven INTO the scarf. The bottom is adorned with bits of abalone shells - this is one amazing woven piece ! You just have to love this rainbow of a sweater ! It's such a happy garment !

This coat won many ribbons and you can see why - this weaver is perfection - and the "fluff" is such a wonderful, whimsical addition !
